From the Publisher
A sequel to the very popular Stones,
Fanatics is a thrilling story in which the past
and present collide in terrifying, riveting ways.
Garnet Havelock has just finished his apprenticeship in
furniture-making, and has found a workshop for his new business in
an old coach house on the isolated estate of recently deceased
Professor Eduardo Corbizzi. Garnet signs a contract with the late
professor''s long-time companion, the eccentric and inscrutable
Mrs. Valentina Stoppini, who presides over the mansion and is its
only occupant. The terms of the deal are excellent, but there''s a
catch: Garnet has to repair the library''s fire damage and keep all
details about the estate confidential. Only after he agrees does
Mrs. Stoppini inform him that the professor died of a seizure in
the library under mysterious circumstances involving "an accident"
and "a small fire." It isn''t long before a distressing collision
of past and present drags Garnet towards a horrifying truth he
could never have imagined.
